My Kodiaq gets part exchanged this weekend, when I first got it I could fill the tank for about £50, now its well over £80. My new Enyaq has about a 300 mile range and will cost approx £8 to top up to maximum. I'm not going to miss spending nearly £200 per month on diesel. Plus I think the new motor looks pretty nice.
Are you saying that your supplier is only charging just over 10p per KW? I'm paying 32p.

My provider offers an EV tariff which charges 10p/kWh between 2am-6am. I set the car to charge between those time, and have started setting the washing machine on a timer for then too.

Mine is 5ppkWh (approx. 1p/mile), coupled with the 45p/mile I claim for using a personal car for work, no maintenance costs (none yet, might need tyres soon), no road tax (yet), no going out of my way to a petrol station twice a week spending £80-100 per visit - the thing is going to pay for itself in less than 10 years and at current used car values will be worth more than I paid for it in the first place when I'm done.

I had to spend the life savings to get it, I hate the idea of finance, but still a total no brainer for me.

£1.99.9 for Deisel at my local motorway services.

Same as @Brew_DD2 I have an EV tariff which gives me a favourable rate of 8.5 pence per KWh. My new car has a charging timer which means I can set it to charge at the cheaper rate. I also use timers on all my appliances like the tumble dryer, dishwasher etc and these run overnight too. We try to keep our usage in the day to as little as possible 🕯.
